    1. My Bird Club Book Club read this collection of essays by birder and columnist Vernon Laux about bird watching on Nantucket. It piqued the curiosity of one of our members so much that she is now planning a trip there. I thought the book was okay. I learned a little bit about Nantucket and birds. I enjoyed the quotes selected for each month, but the writing did not catch my imagination. I thought the book was beautifully printed.
